Tapanappa Pinot Noir 2010

Once again we see Brian Croser’s belief in the site paying off as these relatively young vines are really starting to pay dividends.

A lovely nose of plum and cherry some charry oak and eucalypt but fundamentally it’s earthy and that’s exactly what these distinguished site wines are meant to do – translate some terroir.

The palate is more a sensation of suppleness, a burst of sweet fruit makes way for a mellifluous tannin framework, some spicy persistence and a long finish. Good to see the belief in the Fleurieu region as a place for Pinot to prosper now paying off, so hats tipped in the direction of Monsieur Croser.
